Samra Kesinovic aged 17, fled Austria, her home, to join ISIS and was used as a sex slave by the terrorist group before she was beaten to death, a former prisoner has revealed.
Samra Kesinovic, 17, and her friend Sabina Selimovic, 15, became ‘poster girls’ for the death cult after they arrived in Syria in April 2014.
They appeared on ISIS websites carrying AK-47s and surrounded by groups of armed men. But by October that year, there were reports Miss Kesinovic wanted to flee having been sickened by the terror group’s murders. She was killed by ISIS as she tried to flee their stronghold of Raqqa.
According to a Tunisian former extremist who lived with the two girls in the terror group at Raqqa, she said the two Austrian teenagers were viewed as a ‘sexual present for new fighters’. On leaving home, the two girls reportedly left a note for their families which read: ‘Don’t look for us. We will serve Allah and we will die for him.’
Shortly after arriving in Syria, Sabina, speaking through SMS messages to a French magazine, insisted she was enjoying life in the war-torn region where she felt free to practise her religion.
She said her husband was a soldier and added: ‘Here I can really be free. I can practice my religion. I couldn’t do that in Vienna.’
